Hi Omar

Yes to specific users only able to use IE.

We would run IE in kiosk mode and direct it to our intranet site.
iexplore -k https://www.oursite.com <https://www.oursite.com/>  which
has no external links etc therefore they are "stuck" in there.

I am not sure what you are asking is really coming through loud and
clear maybe you can elaborate.


Let me try to interpret what you are asking and you can say if it is
right or wrong.


You want to be able to limit a specific set of users in an OU to only be
able to use Internet Explorer to access the intranet and no Internet
sites. when a user types in an Internet URL you want them redirected to
an Internal URL.


Is that about right?


The GPO settings for IE can restrict sites but the redirection will need
to happen on a proxy server, router of firewall. ISA 2006 makes that
real easy if it is the gateway or configured as the proxy.


For a GPO you can configure the content Ratings allowed sites to add
your URLs and then you may be able to use a wildcard entries for
everything else but I am not sure how or if the wildcard configuration
will work as desired but it is definitely worth a try.


In the GPO you can find this setting in :


user configuration-Internet Explorer Maintenance-Security-Security Zones
and Content Ratings-Then in the content rating section choose to import
the content ratings and configure the intranet dns zones to always allow
and then create a wildcard for the Never allowed sites something like
*.com and then restricted


Good luck,
